it is this value we need to hold true to ourselves. so today the question i want to ask everybody, from within and from without the profession, what is the true value of architecture? i hope i'm able to answer that. back in 1999, it is amazing, we were talking last week, she was in my office, she is in the san francisco firm, she mentioned she had just been license, she finished architecture school. she mentioned, yes, i graduated high school at 12. that made me feel like, my goodness, the next generation is just going to go to the next level.
